TV Junkie: 'My Boys' Returns; Late Night TV Hot Tonight
"My Boys" season premiere on TBS at 10:30pm
We love comedians Jim Gaffigan and Jamie Kaler so therefore we just kind of have to like TBS' "My Boys" which has its season premiere tonight. While the show isn't any less funny than any of the big network shows, Jim Gaffigan's bits are the highlight of every episode - we wish TBS would build a show around him as the lead, c'mon already.News from Renewaland: NBC renews "Friday Night Lights", MTV, for some reason, renews "Real World" for four more seasons.
Late night TV is on fire tonight, we don't know what to watch: Bill O'Reilly on Letterman, Amy Poehler on Leno, Isabella Rossellini on Ferguson, Glenn Close and Kristen Wiig on Fallon??
